Just got highest RPC for Thai name

You JP guys will laugh, but this is Thailand and we've been used to those horrible "few cent" clicks for years, but the last year noticed a nice uptrend to $0.10 to $0.50 click range..

But yesterday, got 2 clicks on [exchangerate].com totally $5.41 income.

That's a record by far for my Thai clicks. Hope it keeps trending up. Then I can afford a Burger King meal

or in "phaasaa karaoke" (karaoke language), as my daughter calls it:

phom mai mii satang meun kan, mii tae bitcoin

She forced me into learn writing thai in thai letters, not english, as she really hated trying to decypher my tinglish. Good things daughters, especially Thai ones when they get married and you get your dowry. It sure beats paying for childrens' weddings !!

Fascinating wiki about history of thai money:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thai_Baht

Thai used to trade in silver before coins were invented. The smallest unit appears to be the "Bia", which is 1⁄6400 of a baht."Bia" is Thai for "cowry" or "cowry shell" which is a sea shell.

Many sea-faring nations used to trade with each other using cowries:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shell_money

Quite Interestingly, the thai word for "interest" (as in loan) is "Dok Bia", so Thai people still refer to cowry shells on a daily basis, though I doubt a Thai bank would be impressed if you brought in a sack of sea shells to pay back a loan.

So I'm a Bia billionaire - a single pint's fine though if you are buying

Re: Just got highest RPC for Thai name

ParkingCrew

Haven't looked at RPC (or visitor) trends recently but overall income has been roughly stable this last 6 months for Thai .com. Hopefully its because Thais are starting to type .คอม instead ... we can dream

Actually, just took a quick look at our top lottery name, หวย.com, for last 3 months

I've just picked out stats from top two days each month, the 1st and 16th, as the Thai lottery is bi-monthly and most traffic is on or around those days

Format is: Date, uniques

2013-09-01, 997

2013-08-16, 782
2013-08-01, 957

2013-07-16 738
2013-07-01, 706

So it looks like its still climbing nicely. We should have our first 1,000 uniques day soon, probably 1st October.

Income is pretty rubbish because there are no google ads for this keyword so we get served some 2nd-tier rubbish. Still waiting for the day when the Thai lottery goes online and people can start selling tickets via websites. It would be a goldmine then. Whether that actually happens or not in my lifetime is a different matter entirely.

Re: Just got highest RPC for Thai name

Interesting. I have a couple of decent traffic Thai names but they are blocked as well. Pretty annoying to see all those clicks for only a nickel.

Re: Just got highest RPC for Thai name

หวย.com isn't blocked. Just no google ads available, hence the 2nd-tier ads get more income ..

I do have some blocked Thai domains, but avoid talking about those because its bad for my blood pressure
